What is Emsculpt NEO?
Emsculpt NEO is an advanced non-surgical body-contouring treatment that combines two powerful energies: HIFEM and radiofrequency. HIFEM, high-intensity focused electromagnetic energy, is unique to the Emsculpt body contouring device. Emsculpt NEO takes treatment to a new level.
How does Emsculpt NEO work?
The basis of Emsculpt NEO treatment is the synchronized delivery of high-intensity focused electromagnetic energy and radiofrequency.
Radiofrequency quickly raises the temperature of muscle and surrounding fatty tissue by several degrees. The heated tissue is primed for controlled stress. It's comparable to warming up before your workout or playing sports. In less than 4 minutes, the Emsculpt NEO device increases the temperature of subcutaneous fat to the point of apoptosis. The damage that fat cells sustain prompts their removal from the body via natural processes.
Emsculpt is not a fat-reduction treatment; it is the first device developed for involuntary muscle toning and tightening. Cycling through the treatment process in just a few minutes, the device delivers powerful electromagnetic energy to force muscle contractions at a rate not possible with regular exercise. The extreme, rapid stress on the muscles forces adaptation that results in a substantial increase in muscle cells and fibers.
What areas can be treated with Emsculpt NEO?
Emsculpt NEO is performed across 5 different areas of the body:
- Abdomen. Gain a more defined six-pack or correct diastasis recti.
- Buttocks. Lift and sculpt the backside with minimal effort.
- Arms. Tighten the backs of the arms or increase muscle tone in the triceps or biceps.
- Legs. Slim saddlebags and reduce thigh circumference in short, comfortable sessions.
- Calves. Build tone and contour in the lower leg without thousands of lifts.
What are the benefits of Emsculpt NEO?
The heat achieved with radiofrequency energy boosts circulation to muscles so they respond better to the HIFEM energy that causes involuntary contractions. This same heat also quickly breaks down layers of fat that are obscuring muscle tone. The body naturally metabolizes the damaged fat cells, leading to permanent removal. Clinical studies indicate that up to 30% of targeted fat gets burned after Emsculpt NEO. The same studies found that muscle mass could increase by 25% in the 3 months after treatment.
Emsculpt NEO is a non-surgical, non-invasive procedure completed in the office in about 30 minutes. It is well tolerated without anesthesia or sedation. There is no downtime associated with this treatment that has consistently generated clinically-proven results using FDA-approved technologies. A series of treatments can achieve a marked improvement in muscle tone and body shape.
Who is a candidate for Emsculpt NEO?
Emsculpt NEO combines fat-reduction and muscle-toning to help healthy adults redefine their bodies safely, conveniently, and efficiently. The advanced fat-burning capability of this device makes it ideal for adults wanting a little more fat reduction. Where traditional Emsculpt is appropriate for adults with up to BMI 30, Emsculpt NEO can treat patients with up to BMI 35. Both Emsculpt and Emsculpt NEO are available in our Fall River office. We conduct a thorough consultation and physical assessment to help patients determine which procedure is right for them.
What results should I expect after Emsculpt NEO?
Emsculpt NEO can improve muscle structure, body contours, and skin.
- Muscle. Traditional Emsculpt has been shown to increase muscle mass by 16%. Emsculpt NEO increases by 25%.
- Body contours. Traditional Emsculpt can achieve 19% fat reduction in the target area. This modality has a 96% average patient satisfaction rate. Emsculpt NEO can achieve up to 35% fat reduction in the three months following treatment.
- Skin. Fat reduction and muscle tightening could increase the appearance of lines and wrinkles on the skin. The radiofrequency in Emsculpt NEO encourages new collagen and elastin formation in the skin to improve its youthful tightness.
Is Emsculpt NEO painful?
The Emsculpt NEO device cycles between radiofrequency and HIFEM relatively quickly. Patients can expect to feel a moderate heating sensation followed by intense muscle contractions. The contractions occur at a deep level of tissue, resulting in more of an odd, almost tickling sensation than the ache one might expect from numerous crunches or squats. The intensity of the energy can be adjusted as needed if heat or contractions feel too strong.
What are the potential side effects and risks of Emsculpt NEO?
It is not uncommon for a patient to feel sore or tender after their Emsculpt NEO treatment. The muscles do get a tough workout, after all. Tenderness could result from the absorption of radiofrequency energy. Neither side effect is painful. Both usually resolve within a few days.
Is Emsculpt NEO safe?
Yes. The Emsculpt NEO device contains embedded high-intensity magnetic field technology that has been clinically tested for safety and efficacy through seven clinical studies. The device performed well across all studies.
